At Krav Maga Worldwide™ we put your sweat to good use. With each muscle you tone, plateau you bust, and technique you master, you’re not just getting stronger; you’re getting smarter, safer, more confident, and better prepared. Regular practice of Krav Maga gives you the offensive edge –– in the gym and on the street.

Krav Maga Worldwide is the largest reality-based self-defense organization in the world, and industry leader in Krav Maga-based self-defense, fitness, and fighting.  Krav Maga Worldwide has certified hundreds of the most elite law enforcement agencies and military units throughout the world. These organizations have adopted Krav Maga as their official self-defense system because of its instinctive movements, practical techniques, and realistic training methods.

Our methodologies originated with the teachings of Krav Maga founder Imi Lichtenfeld, with added elements of boxing, judo, jujitsu, muay tai, wrestling, and high intensity interval training. Based on the concept of Retzev or “continuous motion,” our skill-building training ensures you’ll develop lifelong self-defense and fitness habits.


The Krav Maga Worldwide™ Training Centers

Our training centers in West LA and Sherman Oaks offer a combined 253 classes per week. Each location is fully equipped with expansive training rooms, state-of-the-art equipment, and up-to-date amenities.

We also train and certify instructors and licensees from around the world with over 150 authorized Krav Maga training centers (KMW Official Training Centers™) in the United States, Canada, Japan, Mexico, and Europe.

Our Core Commitments

We continue to work in conjunction with the non-profit Krav Maga Association of America (KMAA) to ensure the highest caliber of training. We guarantee your classes are led by the top instructors in the world – many of whom teach other Krav Maga instructors all over the globe. Our Chief Instructor, Darren Levine was personally trained by Imi Lichtenfeld, the founder of Krav Maga, and one of only two recipients to be awarded a Krav Maga Founder’s Diploma by the master himself. Levine holds a sixth-degree black belt in Krav Maga and he has trained thousands of the Krav Maga instructors around the world for the past 30 years.

In addition to passing down the teaching of Imi Lichtenfeld’s training, we are personally committed to our clientele. We will help you get in the best shape of your life while developing realistic self defense tactics that empower you to protect family, friends, and loved ones – and even save your life.

While our members and staff may look tough, they’re some of the most welcoming people you’ll meet in Los Angeles. We ask everyone who steps through our doors to check their egos at the front. This way, we ensure a strong sense of community and family-like atmosphere among practitioners.
